Comet in the Sky!


Well, I and and some of my siblings saw a comet today! I knew there were supposed to be comets this past Sunday, but we didn’t see any then. I’d assumed it was long over, so it was a total surprise when my brother was just talking about something and suddenly yelled, “A comet!” My sister and I said, “Right. It’s probably a plane or something.” We looked and it definitely wasn’t a plane; sure enough, there was a comet.  This was about 5 PM and we were surprised we could see it even though the sun was still out. We watched it stream—not shoot—through the sky until it grew smaller and we continued on our walk. Sorry—no pictures 😦 I was so frustrated we hadn’t brought our camera!!!! But I’m so thankful we got to see it 😀  I’m fascinated by the vastness and beauty of the universe God created, and the comet reminded me of this Psalm:

When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; what is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou visitest him?

~ Psalm 8:3-4 ~

This comet was part of the Orionid meter shower, which happens annually and is caused by Halley’s Comet. Here are some pictures:

~ Some pics I took of peaches, one of my favorite fruits!

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Rain


Who covereth the heaven with clouds,

Who prepareth rain for the earth,

Who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
